Title : Four Regional Maps of Germany..
Map maker : BOWEN, E..
Date : London, ca. 1744.
Size : 13.6 x 16.7 inches. / 34.5 x 42.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :Four decorative regional maps of Germany including the North-East, Sout-East,North-West and South-West parts. each is decorated with a fancy cartouche.
Emanuel Bowen (1714-1767), map and print seller, engraver to George II and to Louis XV of France worked in London from 1714 producing some the best and most attractive maps of the 18th century. He had plans for completing a major County Atlas but, finding the task beyond his means, joined with Thomas Kitchin to publish “The Large English Atlas”.
Many of the maps were issued individually from 1749 onwards and the whole atlas was not finally completed until 1760. With one or two exceptions they were the largest maps of the counties to appear up to that time (27 x 20) and were unusual in that blank areas around each map are filled with historical and topographical detail which makes fascinating and amusing reading.
The atlas was reissued later in reduced size. Apart from his county maps and atlases of different parts of the world he also issued (with John Owen) a book of road maps based, as was usual at that time, again incorporating his own style of historical and heraldic detail. His son, Thomas helped his father during his lifetime and produced many fine maps in his own right after his father’s death.

Condition : In very good condition with several professionally repaired margin tears and with the North-East map remargined on two sides.
